LA CROSSE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – State officials are joining those in the Coulee Region pushing for a major federal investment in clean transportation.

Wisconsin Health Professionals for Climate Action hosted a virtual press conference today, explaining how electric vehicles will help create a clean environment.

The city of La Crosse will be implementing electric buses this fall, a big step for smaller Wisconsin communities.

Adam Lorentz, La Crosse Municipal Transit director said, “It’s mainly the large municipalities that have really put EV vehicles into rotation, and so with the eyes on La Crosse, and we’re happy to have it, but the promotion of a size fleet that we have right now is something that could be really positive for the rest of the state and really the Midwest in general.”

Electric vehicle advocates believe investing in clean buses is a critical part of combating climate change.
